Greenway Cycle Routes on Disused Railway Lines

Erzbahntrasse bridge in the Ruhr region

The conversion of disused railway lines makes it possible to develop safe and comfortable cycle-path infrastructure with relatively little effort. Cycle paths on railway embankments can be used both as sections of the local cycle-route network in a city or municipality and as routes connecting various small towns and villages.
